  • "South African-born Neil Turok works on understanding the universe's very beginnings. With Stephen Hawking, he developed the Hawking-Turok instanton solutions, positing that, big bang or no, the universe came from something, not from utter nothingness. He founded the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) in Muizenberg, a postgraduate center supporting math and science. His TED Prize wish is to help him grow AIMS and promote the study of math and science in Africa, so that the world's next Einstein may be African. Accepting his 2008 TED Prize, this physicist speaks out for talented young Africans starved of opportunity: by unlocking and nurturing the continent's creative potential, we can create a change in Africa's future. A streaming videorecording."
